We waited at our table for 15 minutes before our server greeted us. We then waited an additional 15 minutes and still had no drinks, no bread, nothing.

We left after being there for 30 minutes with not even a water to drink on our table. We will not be back.

We were very disappointed in the food Sunday night. We came with big explantation‘s about this whole place. But the only thing that was any good was the Anti-pasta salad that we ordered. We also order the small lasagna which was so badly dried out. The only thing that was fresh was the sauce that was poured on top of it as well as the mozzarella cheese was place on top of it. We also order one meat ball which was cold in the center of it. So much Disappointment in the food. The second dish we order wasn’t that good as well. It was a small Penne San Remo. Which tasted like from last night dinner. Oh and top things of was getting charged for a small cup of Pepperonis. With a bill over $50.00 you would think you would just get it on the house. Our Reservation is #: 2110049164

Our server "Nicky" was incredible and handled our large party of 12 with grace and charm. Our drinks were always full, service was on point, and the food came out hot and delicious. We never seem to have an issue with large party reservations at Buca di Beppo. We also appreciate that the bathrooms are typically very clean.

Our server was friendly but she was not attentive and several times I had to leave my table and try to find her. The mozzarella bread we ordered had hardly any cheese on it, had a strong garlic smell but tasted terrible. I asked for extra sauce on my pizza and did not get it. I was given a side of marinara sauce instead. I explained to the waitress that our pizza was not the way we ordered it and our server said she would get us the right sauce on the side to add to our pizza. The pizza was greasy and not very tasty. The chicken cannelloni was great and I would order it again. When I finally tracked down our server for our bill I noticed that she charged us for two sides of sauce. When she eventually came back to our table and asked if we wanted a box to take our food home, we told her we needed a box for the cannelloni. She asked if we wanted to take the mozzarella bread home because we did not eat much of it and I explained that the bread wasn’t very good and we did not like it. Our server didn’t apologize for the bread or ask if we wanted it removed from our bill. Instead she ignored us and started to walk away and I had to stop her to explain to her that I never asked for two sides of sauces and the only reason we got it was because she offered it to us because our pizza wasn’t made correctly. The server said she would remove them and when she brought back the bill it still had one side of sauce on it. In frustration I paid the bill and gave her half of what her tip should have been. With the exception of the wonderful Chicken cannelloni, the food and especially our server was awful. My family and I were very disappointed in our experience and I’m not sure if we will go back there anytime soon based on this experience.

Buca used to be a great value destination. Unfortunately, they have significantly raised their prices while decreasing portion sizes. Therefore, instead of going every couple weeks, we may go once a year and seek alternatives to family dining. On a plus side, our server (Tina) was outstanding.

BEWARE, HUGE price increases. This was our first time back eating at Buca and there were 2 big surprises. First, was the very noticeable, price increases. And I'm not talking a dollar or 2. Way to much of increase, even with the big portions of food you get. Second, was how empty the restaurant was. We go out a lot and most restaurants are packed right now and have long waits and no available reservations. But not Buca, no long waits and all reservation times were available. The only thing good was the service, but the place was empty so the service better be good. Unfortunately, because of those big price increases, we will not be back. I predict, Buca will be the next big chain to start closing locations.

Birthday celebration but no special attention from the staff, perhaps due to covid adjustments. First time dining experience here and not inclined to return. The restaurant is intentionally over-the-top kitchy and the food is very average. Food is abundant but prices reflect the quantity not the quality. Maybe if the “fun” level was amped up, I’d recommend it for a party but without that, it’s just not that good.

I love this place. But i called ahead to see if there was a wait time, hostess said 20 mins. I said okay can you add me to the list ? She said they don’t do call aheads. I said okay, can I make a reservation for 745? She said no we don’t do call aheads. I told her it wasn’t a call ahead for the waitlist , I want to make a reservation to hold my spot. She said she can’t do that. So I go on opentable and was able to make a reservation at 7:45. I work in hospitality and with opentable & resy. She needs training in customer service.
